Museums of the World

Ms. Alison Groves

This course takes students on a virtual world tour of museum collections, introducing visual art, design and anthropological understandings by studying art objects and artefacts in prized museum collections. By considering the history, context and contemporary interpretations of these collections and commentaries, students will form deeper understandings of the social and cultural forces that frame the world's most valued expressions of human experience

This course will give students the opportunity to refine their ability to lead group discussions and offer meaningful questions and informed opinions. While researching the set museum collection each week, students have the opportunity to explore objects and narratives which connect to their experience, challenge their beliefs and offer new insights to the human experience.
